The 12 Modern Lamps of Christmas 2013 – Day 8
Today is day 8 of our 12 Modern Lamps of Christmas, which means we’ve already highlighted seven great giftable lamps. If you’ve been reading along from the beginning, thanks! But if you’re just joining the party, why not take a few minutes to check out what makes a lamp “giftable” and look over the lamps profiled before today. It started a week ago, on Dec. 1.
Then come on back, and you’ll be all ready to read about #8:
Know someone who’s a nature lover? Then the Justice Design Limoges Dakota Table Lamp will make a great gift. Likes graphic retro patterns? The Limoges Dakota Table Lamp again. Enjoys a warm, candlelight-like glow?
Well, you get the picture. The Limoges Dakota Table Lamp appeals to many tastes, due primarily to its overall clean, modern form and numerous customizable options. It is also functionally versatile, with a size and shape that make it useful as either a tabletop centerpiece or more subtle ambient light source off to the side.
It features a cluster of three shades made out of translucent porcelain, which glow like pillar candles at staggered heights atop their metal base. These cylinders are given greater decorative interest with a variety of possible patterns embossed onto their surface, the intricate details of which are only enhanced when the lights are on. Once you’ve chosen the right porcelain pattern, then you can decide on the finish for the base.
The final piece makes the ideal gift mostly because it is perfectly personalized to whomever you give it. It will satisfy their design tastes, complement their decor and show that you’ve been paying attention to both.
